Your New Year’s Eve 2013 in Prince Edward Island

The Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in the nation in both land area and population. According to the 2009 estimates, Prince Edward Island has 141,000 residents. The island's cultural traditions of art, music and creative writing are supported through the public education system and offer a wide variety. The Prince Edward Island offers miles of sandy beaches, which can be counted  as belonging to the best in the world. The rich culture and heritage offers much to be seen and explored. And the warm hospitality sets them apart. Your New Year 2013 could take place in this beautiful landscape.

Celebration of the arrival of the new calendar year is not as big in Prince Edward Island as in some other parts of the world. Still, countdown parties are organized in homes, community centers, bars and hotels on New Year's Eve. Especially in Charlottetown, the capital city you’ll be able to join in with all the jolly festivities. On New Year's Day, January 1, some people attend events called levées. A levée is a type of reception unique to Canada, held by the governor general, the lieutenant governors of the provinces, the military and others, to mark the start of another year and to provide an opportunity for the public to pay their respects. So you won’t just have a great party night out on New Year’s Eve, but also on the first of January if you decide to stay on Prince Edward Island.
